ironically who are cheering the downfall of president hosni mubarak twoiers and we are delighted to see the first democratically elected president of egym ever, a year ago same people looking now toward egypt. it was absolutely remarkable to hear the sounds. you've had apache helicopters flying low, the military helicopters, low over the crowd. and the crowds are cheering the military. ironically the same military that was sent back to their barracks 18 months ago after helping to oust the former president hosni mubarak. i think it would be right to say tonight the crowds here certainly don't see this as a coup. they see this as hitting the reset button for egypt. people you speak to here on the streets, taxi drivers, whoever you speak to, were looking for -- they've learned this is a nascent democracy, and they have learned in the last two years that things aren't eaty, but they are in and out looking to the future with this transitional government. they will assume the presidency, like christiane said, we don't know how long this period will last nor how long it would be until new pre
of the revolution which toppled hosni mubarak. she joins me now from new york. i know you are on your way to cairo. you must be excited about would you have seen today. today is a bittersweet day for me. although i celebrate and say good riddance to mohammed morsi , i am also very wary of the ministry and i want to make very clear that whether -- whoever is coming egyptians and the egyptian revolution will not allow anyone to rule us or oppress us in an authoritarian way. even though the military has been bob clearly what happened today, this has to be seen as a victory for the egyptian people. we must make it clear that they are not welcome in the ruling of egypt. this revolution must continue until egypt is free. >> was this a coup? >> this is the question of the day. what i have seen is millions of egyptians who have been frustrated along every step of the way by it mohammed morsi. we asked him to hold elections and he refused. raised more cases of insulting the president than half the mubarak did. what other avenues did we have the side street protests to protest against mohammed morsi? millio
the arab spring, when hosni mubarak was thrown from power. the new president, morsi, was democratically elected. now he's gone after a year in office. and right now, tonight, the power structure is vague, after the military rolled in. our team is in place in cairo tonight, including our chief foreign correspondent, richard engel, back on familiar territory. richard, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. some people here are saying what has happened today was a coup. that is certainly what the now ousted president morsi is saying in the only statements so far. he said "a revolution has been stolen." but in tahrir square, they are not calling this a coup. they say it was military intervention at their request for change. just watch. and listen. it's the cry of millions of egyptians, an outpouring of joy and relief. that a weight has been lifted from their shoulders. the end of an experiment in political islam, gone wrong. >> i'm crying, because i'm so happy. so happy, we get rid of them. >> we are now free of the muslim brotherhood. >> reporter: a reset button pushed once again
speaking of which the timetable is all important here, the last time the military stepped in, hosni mubarak went out and they hung around way too long and way too gong to get to elections. what sense of urgency is there they will move to an election process in the very near future and if they're arresting all the muslim brotherhood where is the inclusiveness. >> that's exactly right. starting with the muslim brotherhood they're going to have to be inclusive eventually. the muslim brotherhood still is a significant part of society. you cannot marginalize a section of society. you have to be inclusive. there is going to be have to be a dialog between the two sides to get the muslim brotherhood back in place. what's different between this transitional period and the one we saw before is that the military quickly handed overpower to a civilian that he would lead the transitional period. that is a big step because he will have support not from many different sections of society, he is also talking to the opposition, the last time we saw transitional period it really was the army ruling by itself
the region for 80 years. under the former regime of hosni mubarak they were given absolutely no chance. but within a year it seems that experiment has been decimated. what happens next will be absolutely fascinating. you're watching coverage of a new day, a new dawn for egypt. with me becky anderson live from cairo. back after this. sleep train's ticket to tempur-pedic ends sunday. experience the pressure-relieving comfort of tempur-pedic, and sleep risk-free with sleep train's 100-day money back guarantee. get 36 months interest-free financing: no down, and no interest for 3 years. plus, get free same-day delivery. sleep train's 100-day money back guarantee, interest-free financing, and free delivery? that's the ticket! sleep train's ticket to tempur-pedic ends sunday. ♪ sleep train ♪ your ticket to a better night's sleep ♪ >>> welcome back to "cnn newsroom." time to check the weather. there's been some extreme weather on opposite coasts of the u.s. heat wave in the west and ongoing flooding in the east. meteorologist ivan cabrera joins us now from the cnn weather center with th

president obama be doing? john boulton joins me now? this looks a lot like 2011, hosni mubarak stepped down. are we just replacing mubarak with mubarak? what are we doing? >> well, hosni mubarak called for the outster of morsi. you can bet mubarak is celebrating tonight too. the muslim brotherhood taken its election and using it to follow the principal one vote, one person, one time. and wanted to establish an islamist state under sharia law. you don't get to vote on what god's will is when somebody knows what god's will is. they were move in the direction of the authoritarian society. and i think the military was justified in staging this coup. having said that, nobody should underestimate the strength of the brotherhood. the international observers said the parliamentary elections were free and fair. brotherhood candidates got close to 50% of seats. and the islamic majority is somewhere from 2/3 to 3/4. you people told us we had to have elections, we had elections, we won and then you stage a military coup. the prospect for violent conflict and bloodshed remains high. >> the president put

years after the arab spring southwest -- swept egypt's ruler hosni mubarak from power his successor is under siege tonight. violent protests have left at least four people dead and nearly 200 injured as a nationwide movement to oust him gains traction. that's where we find nbc's amon. >> reporter: it's been one year since mohamed morsi was elected egypt's first civilian president. they are highlighting the deep divisions in this country that many fear will turn violent. today it is a battle of wills on the streets in egypt. hundreds of thousands gather in tahrir square. and they toppled one leader and today they want to do it again. >> get out of here. >> reporter: outside the presidential palace a festive atmosphere but with a serious message. >> we are muslims and christians saying to the worldwide, this is enough. >> reporter: she is one of the 22 million egyptians over the past two months who signed a petition demanding mohamed morsi step down from power. she and millions more were part of a grass root. its members say a year after morsi was elected life for egyptians has gotten

that overthrew former president hosni mubarak two years ago. we go to cairo. good day. >> reporter: good morning, brian. you're right. by the numbers, not only in cairo, but all across egypt, millions of egyptians took to the street to mark that one-year anniversary. they have been for the past two months collecting signatures of more than 22 million egyptians, calling on president mohamed morsi to step down. yesterday, they came out in force to really begin with what they are a acts of civil disobedience to get the president to resign. late last night, a presidential spokesperson said they're willing to have negotiations with the opposition on the way forward. but right now, there's no reason for him to step down. he is the democratically elected president of the country. still has a large mandate. but against that backdrop, egypt remains tense. a calm settling in cairo and other cities. the death toll from yesterday's protests, according to the ministry of health now is at 60. that number could rise in the coming hours. hundreds more have been injured. on the political front, the two sides cou

role of the military and the toppling of former president hosni mubarak. they helped overthrow him but they were reluctant to let go of power. there is hardly any organization and eat if that is as well- organized as the army. it has half a million soldiers with fixed structures that have been in place for decades. army officers and former members of the military hold many key positions in society, particularly in administration. the army is also a key economic factor in egypt. whether it is tourism, construction, or heavy industry, the army is involved in every level. as the largest employer, that gives the army chiefs huge power. it was president mohamed morsi appointed him to his post. but he has now distanced himself from the president warning that he will not allow egypt to be plunged into what he called "a dark tunnel." >> we are happy to have our middle east expert. we have breaking news coming in, miguel, that mohamed morsi can no longer be president according to the military in a state run newspaper. is this unexpected development? >> in a way, it is. they made it very cle

hosni mubarak was overturned. there are two narratives for what is happening. as you just heard, supporters of the muslim brotherhood saying this is a military coup and the people you talk to say no it was mohamed morsy acting increasingly undemocratic and we needed the military's help to push him out of power and what is striking is seeing prominent liable voices like the peace prize winner and former international energy standing side by side with the top egyptian military general and defending the action, stripping morsy of his powers, calling it a correction of 2011 revolution. >> ben, you're been at a pro-morsy rally all day long. what happens next? for how long can those two rallies, these two various camps with large numbers of supporters in each one continue for? >> it's important to stress, anderson, the number of people at that pro-morsy is just a drop in the bucket come parped to the -- compared to the tens of thousands coming into tahrir square. we passed through a mosque and i saw hundreds of men sleeping on the floor, and as i made my way around their sleeping bodi
the giant protest, two and a half years ago, against the 30-year dictatorship of hosni mubarak in egypt. the u.s. government in this cable, they assessed what role the egyptian military would play when it came time for mubarak to go. at the time, the operating assumption in the u.s. government was that mubarak would try to install his son as his successor. would the military go along with that plan? the general assumption by the u.s. government was yes. the military would go along with it. we agree with the analysis that senior military officers would support mubarak's son if mubarak resigned and installed the son in the presidency. but in a messier succession scenario, it becomes more difficult to predict the military's actions. mubarak installed his son to take over, the u.s. government assessed a few days ago, they would be okay with the son. that's what would happen in egypt, right? in a messier scenario, the u.s. government's assessment was, who knows? well, who knows is where we are right now. on a day important enough in world history that your daytime television viewing on nbc t
of 2011 that ended president hosni mubarak's nearly thee decades in power. june 24, 2012 muslim brotherhood candidate mohammed morsi became the president after a divided election, but an election nonetheless that was held in egypt. june 25th of this year hundreds of thousands back in the streets yet again protesting morey on the two-year anniversary of the beginning of the original revolt. rick granell is with me now served as a spokesman for the last two ambassadors. welcome to you there in los angeles. it is my feeling that people in cairo believe that mohammed morsi is going to walk out of there in ten or 15 minutes. that does not appear to be the case. if that is true, what happens? >> i think you're right. i think that the people have faith that the military leaders are going to take over and be in control, and the one thing that they have going for them is history. we have seen throughout history that the egyptian military is in control, and they are great caretakers to make sure that there is a stable egypt. and they have demonstrated recently they recognize that changes
saw the former president hosni mubarak in power for 30 years. so this is the interim measure supposedly as the country waits for fresh elections down the track. you notice the u.s. hasn't used the term military coup in disposing what we're seeing from the president. >> there is a reason for that. the foreign aid is dependent upon not being a military coup. it is a very clear part of the legislation. if there is a military coup, then the foreign aid, which is over $1.5 billion and is absolutely crucial to the egyptian economy has to be suspended automatically. i think obama was cautious in dancing around the words. whether we like it or not, members of congress made it quite clear they see this as a coup. it is hard to argue under any other circumstance there isn't a coup. whether it is a popular coup is a matter of semantics. i think that is a real problem for egypt. there is a degree of relief this morning that the country hasn't collapsed into civil war and let's hope that continues. i think this whole revolution, if you can use it, was driven by the economy. and they had a
, when we saw protesters in the streets of cairo. hosni mubarak stepped down. are we just replacing mubarak with mubarak? what are we doing? >> well, you know, hosni mubarak called for the ouster of mohammed morsi, so you can bet mubarak's celebrating tonight, too. the fact is that the muslim brotherhood had taken its election victory and was using it to follow the principle one person, one vote, one time. they wanted to establish an islamist state under shirria law. you don't get to vote on god's well when you know what god's will is. i think they are moving in the direction of an authoritarian society and the military was justified in staging this coupe. having said that, nobody should underestimate the strength of the brother looed, international observers said the elections were free and fair. the brotherhood candidates got 50% of the seats and more radical candidates took the islamist majority between two-thirds and three-quarters of parliament. this is a very strong feeling in egypt. they will say, you told you us we had to have elections, we had elections, we won and you taj

revolution. that toppled hosni mubarak and his regime. >> ifill: with tensions at a breaking point this afternoon, there were reports of armed clashes and casualties between morsi-backers and opponents in cairo. a short time ago, president morsi announced via twitter that he will be holding "onto constitutional legitimacy" and called on the egyptian military to withdraw its ultimatum. for more i'm joined by nancy youssef of mcclatchy newspapers in cairo. nancy, this is unfolding even as we speak. we also heard via twitter this afternoon that president morsi said he is not going to give into this ultimatum by the military. what is the health of his regime tonight? >> well, as you mentioned earlier at least five of his ministers resigned. two government spokesmen, a cabinet spokesman, and the streets are as packed as they were yesterday and the day before. and it shows no signs of subsiding. tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. the army deadline will be here. and we expect that the burden will fall on the military to resolve this impasse which, from morsi's speech so far, he's not giving up any gro
they wanted back in 2011 when they ousted the former dictator hosni mubarak. however, tonight it is a very different tone from the supporters of president mohamed morsi including himself. we were able to hear from him, a posting was made on the official facebook page in which the president or the former president rather said that this was a military coup. he called on all citizens as well as members of the armed forces to reject this coup and more importantly, to aside by the law and constitution. even despite the fact that he has been ousted by military, he is still extremely defiant. now, at this stage, members of the muslim brotherhood and freedom and justice party, most of their leadership is at a protest across town. we understand it is a very different scene than the one here. one of great somber, one of great sorrow. they feel a democratically elected president has been taken away from the will of the people so to speak. it is a very different scene in that part of the city than what we're seeing here tonight. many people are prayed that division is going to play out in the next com
